VII.2.16 Pompeii. March 2009. Decorative floor in lararium niche in west wall of portico. According to Boyce, along the west portico there were two large niches, one with wooden doors, the other recess for two large cupboards. On the ground before the one with wooden doors, were found the following bronze statuettes:
Fortuna wearing a turreted crown and holding a cornucopia and rudder.
Minerva wearing a helmet and holding a spear and patera.
Apollo with quiver on his shoulder holding a laurel branch and patera.
A wreathed Lar, standing on a base of lead.
The bust of a female figure from a herm.
Also found were other objects, among them gold earrings, a bronze bracelet, 373 pieces of coral and a small amphora of glass. There seemed to be a discrepancy as to the actual find spot, as Boyce remarks that on page 19 of the Giorn.Scavi, this is given as within the niche fitted with the wooden doors.
On page 26, it says found on the ground before it.  Fiorelli agrees with them being found on the ground before the niche.
